Lynch Ambulance is a non-emergency transport ambulance company. Under current county ordinance, only the Orange County Fire Authority and 911 providers can hire paramedics. Lynch has been forced to use nurses (twice as expensive as paramedics) for all non-emergency transports, almost doubling the cost of each transport. We advocated at the County level and OCFA to change county ordinance to allow private ambulance companies to hire paramedics. This process continues.
